About ESI Fellows

The ESI School Design Fellowship will bring together a diverse team from which the principals of the new schools will be selected. Fellows may come from the fields of youth and community work, entrepreneurship and management, educational reform, or other relevant fields. While not all fellows are expected to have experience in school settings, all will bring passion and commitment to educating Black and Latino young men and women toward college and career success. The 12 to 15 fellows will be immersed in learning, collaborative design and school implementation support over a 14-month period as they build out the elements that define the model. At the conclusion of the fellowship, it is expected that each fellow will assume a position of leadership in the new schools.
